C Specification

To decode a frame, call:

// Provided by VK_KHR_video_decode_queue
void vkCmdDecodeVideoKHR(
    VkCommandBuffer                             commandBuffer,
    const VkVideoDecodeInfoKHR*                 pFrameInfo);

Parameters

  • commandBuffer is the command buffer to be filled with this function for decode frame command.

  • pFrameInfo is the pointer of VkVideoDecodeInfoKHR.

Description

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-vkCmdDecodeVideoKHR-commandBuffer-parameter
    commandBuffer must be a valid VkCommandBuffer handle

  • VUID-vkCmdDecodeVideoKHR-pFrameInfo-parameter
    pFrameInfo must be a valid pointer to a valid VkVideoDecodeInfoKHR structure

  • VUID-vkCmdDecodeVideoKHR-commandBuffer-recording
    commandBuffer must be in the recording state

  • VUID-vkCmdDecodeVideoKHR-commandBuffer-cmdpool
    The VkCommandPool that commandBuffer was allocated from must support decode operations

  • VUID-vkCmdDecodeVideoKHR-renderpass
    This command must only be called outside of a render pass instance

  • VUID-vkCmdDecodeVideoKHR-bufferlevel
    commandBuffer must be a primary VkCommandBuffer

Host Synchronization
  • Host access to the VkCommandPool that commandBuffer was allocated from must be externally synchronized
